A New Version of a Great Classic with Marcia Goldlist

It is hard to believe that we are at the end of the year 2014. Whenever I have to write the year I pause and check myself. Can it really be 2014? Well, time does move on, and lots of things have certainly changed, yet some things do stay the same. Some things are just important. Family is important. And no matter what your religion, or even if you are not affiliated with any religion, the Bible is important. It has been the most influential book in history, yet many people are against opening it. So, I decided to bring the stories of the Bible to those who do not want to open a Bible. (However don’t let this turn you off if you like to read the Bible.) The Bible in Rhyme series is accurate but much easier to read and understand than the Bible and it’s fun as it is all written in rhyming couplets. But, you don’t have to be a poetry enthusiast to read the books. One Amazon reviewer wrote, “… Even for those who shy away from poetry, like I do, this is an easy fun read.”
This coming year take the time to read a true classic that has influenced the world for so long. Check out the characters and the plots. You will be astonished at how great these stories are and how much you enjoy them. These books are ideal for reading with the family, but they also make good reading for adults and preteens as well as teenagers. So, don’t be shy to check out this series for yourself and those on your holiday gift list!

Amazon review – “… When one meets up with her book they are immediately struck with the thought; I can’t believe this has not been done before now. And no doubt many wonderful bible-in-rhyme books have and are being published, but Marcia has undertaken to actually create a paraphrase in rhyming verse form so that each and every verse is represented in poetic form. This, to my knowledge has never in the history of the world been done before. Marcia’s book is the first….”
